Denny’s in Makati: Breakfast Treats at Any Time of the Day
America’s famous diner Denny’s has finally come to Makati at the newly-opened Ayala North Exchange, Legaspi Village.
Open 24/7, diners can enjoy big hearty meals—like their breakfast Slams, good ol’ American food, and even familiar comfort Filipino dishes!
From a donut stand in America back in 1953, Denny’s has come a long way to offer diner food anytime. The brand promises to stay open 24 hours a day, 364 days in a year—sans 1 for Christmas day.
The first Denny’s branch in Southeast Asia opened in the Philippines in 2016, and now citizens of Makati can enjoy the famous pancakes, hearty meals, and desserts at the Ayala North Exchange.

The Slams is one of Denny’s staple menu. Grand slam is the baseball term for a four-base hit, and their Original Grand Slam (Php 395) has puffy and sweet buttermilk pancakes, crispy bacon strips, sunny-side up eggs, and juicy sausages—four slammin’ treats in one big plate.
Kids and kids-at-heart could go for Denny’s golden waffles that they pair with fried chicken, strawberry, peanut butter, or fudge brownies for a sweet and heavy breakfast!
You can also customize your slam with additional items such as rice, mashed potatoes, and ham.
